It's Friday, and the girls and I had the day off! Today is kind of a citywide holiday because of Fiesta celebrations. Today was the Battle of Flowers Parade, and schools close as well as certain parts of the city. My office is at the starting point for the parade, so good luck getting in and out of there for work when the roads are baracaded off! They actually use our office for the parade headquarters for the Battle of Flowers and the Fiesta Flambeau (Saturday night) parades. Employees can bring their families to watch the parade from bleachers within the fenced parking lot, but I opted to have the pool installed instead. The girls and I might go down tomorrow night, but I'm not 100% certain on that just yet. It is a lot of fun though, and any reason is a good reason to get a day off!
1. What is your favorite sign of spring?
My favorite of sign of spring is when the green starts popping up around the dried brown branches of my plants. You can usually find me outside this time of the year poking around and looking to see if there were any slight changes from day to day...love it!
2. What was your best birthday ever?
My best birthday ever was the year my friends kidnapped my house and did room redo's for the livingroom and kitchen. One of my best friends, Toni, is an interior designer and she wrangled the rest of the girls, got a house key from my hubby and they went to town. I had been going over paint colors for both rooms and Toni used the exact ones I had chosen. I had asbolutely no idea until I walked in the house that evening and started bawling! We finished the night at my favorite Thai restaurant.
3. What is your favorite dessert?
My favorite dessert was fried cheesecake with vanilla/cinnamon icecream, but the restaurant that served it closed. Delicious doesn't even begin to cover it! Home desert is always warm brownies with vanilla ice cream. I'll stop because I have a favorite desert for just about every mood, kind of day, etc.!
4. What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?
I've only gotten one ticket at this point in my life and there was no getting out of it. I'm sure it didn't help that when the officier asked me if I had contact on, my response was, "I sure hope so. If I didn't, you would probably be pulling me out of a tree." Sometimes I just have no control over what pops out of my mouth, I was also 18 at that time!
5. Do you wake up before your alarm, with your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?
I either wake up with my alarm or before it. Usually I wake up singing and moving my foot to whatever song comes on. The snooze button would only get me in deep trouble, so I've never gone there!
